Belated Vocations in the UK

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I don't doubt that at some point there has already been a thread on this topic but I was unable to find it.  I please let me know if you know of one.

I am 55 years old and am currently looking into living a contemplative consecrated life.  I know that most cloistered contemplative orders in the US aren't keen on starting out with a postulant at my advanced age.  From my research, I have only found a handful that would consider anyone over 40.  It appears that the UK is not so concerned with age and I am willing to travel to find wherever the Lord wants me to be.  I know in my heart that this is my path.

Does anyone know of any contemplative orders in the UK that accept belated vocations?  I am most interested in Poor Clares and Carmelites.

Thank you for your help and God Bless You!

You could try the OCD Nuns at the Carmel in Wolverhampton. They accept mature vocations.
